    I would like to do a diesel swap into a fullsize Bronco. I just can't decide on the engine. I was thinking I would try and get some opinions and hopefully some insight on this.

    I found a mechanic that has a brand new never been used ford zf5, its been sitting in his shop for 5 years. He says he will give it to me for $900 (sounds very negotiable) The bad thing is that I need a 4X4 transmission, any one converted one from 2wd to 4X4?? Is it worth to get this "BRAND...

    I'm sure this has been discussed numerous times, but please bear with me... I'm looking at swapping a 4BT into my '88 Bronco. I've located a 1988 Ford step van with a 4BT and 5-speed manual. The van is located about 300 miles away, and the seller doesn't know exactly what engine/transmission...

    Does it have to be off of a diesel truck? Can it be from a gas truck? What years of ford trucks will work? I was going to get an NV4500 but want to go ZF instead so I dont have to buy adapter between transmisson and transfer case. Thanks for the help Im trying to get all the parts for my 79...

    One of my coworkers will sell me his 1992 dodge duelly diesel (6bt) for $1500. It has close to 300K miles, but it was a hard used farm truck. Its already on its 2nd NV4500 ( the pulled way more weigth than the truck was rated for) I planned on using the NV4500 and assosiated parts off of it...

    Mine will be going into a 4x4 Bronco, do I HAVE to get a 4X4 tranny? What is the difference? Can you use a 2WD on a 4X4 vehicle? Sorry for the newbie question, but should be simple for you fellas with experience. Thansk

    I want to know how you guys that got a step van found yours. I contacted Fritolay and they sent me over to an auction site dovebidding or something like that. Is that how yall found the step vans? Craigslist has not helped. Ebay only found rebuilt motors for over $3K I drove around looking...

    I have a 79 bronco that I want to put a diesel into. I have not made up my mind on a 6bt or 4bt yet. It seems like a 6bt is easier to get and I can get an installation kit and instruction book from fordcummins.com, but that motor weighs alot more and might more easily tear up my axles. The...

    I have access to a 4bt that might or might not be working. It is just sitting in a garage, current owner has no details on engine. My questions are as follows: 1. Worst case, the engine is not working, how much is a 4bt block worth? How much would you pay for a non working...

    I'm looking for an early Bronco (1966-1977) with a 4bt in it. I am willing to buy or trade for one that is complete. The trade would be my 1974 Bronco that has the 302, C4, and a few goodies. My Bronco is in great condition. I'm not looking for a project, but rather something that is a daily...
